Bridesmaid’s got back! While wedding gowns with dramatic and elegant backs have been a major trend in 2013, after October’s Bridal Fashion Week we’re willing to bet that the backless trend will hit bridesmaid dresses in 2014. We love that it’s subtly sexy and more fashion forward than your traditional bridesmaid silhouette.

When it comes to getting a beautiful back for the big day, we recommend exfoliating with dirt. luxe salt scrub followed by a little Caudalie Divine Oil for seriously glowing skin.

Here, our favorite new ways to get the look.
